Starbucks No Longer Allowing Guns Inside Coffee Shops

Posted: Updated:
Seattle, WA -

The Starbucks CEO has a message for gun owners: please don't bring your weapons into our coffee shops.  

The company was roped into the gun debate last month when a group of gun owners announced plans online for a "Starbucks Appreciation Day."  In response, the Newtown Coalition for corporate responsibility published an open letter calling for gun bans in all Starbucks stores.

The company C-E-O had this say.

"We are not pro, or anti-gun. However, we do believe that guns should not be part of the Starbucks experience. And as a result of that, making that decision, we are respectfully requesting that those customers who are carrying a gun, just honor the request and not bring the gun into Starbucks," said Howard Schultz, Starbucks CEO.

Starbucks is publishing an open letter on the request to gun owners in major newspapers tomorrow (Thursday).
